dreadlocks changing more than your hair


General Talk

So far it did not change anything on how I feel or see myself more on how I see others. For me it brought out thesuperficial side of people that I did not know they had and people who Ithoughtwhere superficial actually where much less and more open minded then Ithought.

Naturally occurring dreadlocks a concept difficult to grasp


General Talk

Thanks. A lot of our 'morals' areold tribal habits. Example empathy or the desire to help perfect strangers. There is no reason to, it does not give any evolutionaryadvantageto help some one we will never see again so why do we feel the need to? In a tribe helping someone always payed off because no one was a strangers and we would always get back what we 'invested'. This created a natural selection that the mosthelpfulpeople in the tribe had a greater chance of survival and passing on genes. Today helping a stranger is a kind of 'misfiring' of this trait. Like a bug flying into a camp fire. Some bugs use the sun or stars to navigate but camp fires (and porch lights) are a modern invention so them flying into it is the misfiring of their ability to navigate with the sun and stars.

That's very insightful, I think you're onto something. We still need to be alert to what's happening around us, but being able to tell real threats from harmless differences is what distinguishes an aggressively conformist society from one that's tolerant of diversity. There's an evolutionary benefit in diversity as well. Cultural random mutation, perhaps. I'm just tossing around ideas here. :)

Why Does Our Hair Knot


General Talk

Good question. Hair knots because of the cuticles (like scales) that are there to protect the hair so I think it is just a side effect of these cuticles being there no real reason at all IMO and no everything does not have a reason some things are the way they just because ofcircumstances. There is no intent in nature just natural selectionrandommutation genetic drift and so on...maybe locks in the past gave humans and other animals a evolutionary advantage but it's difficult to really know.

Interesting discussions. I love it when some of you share some personalexperience. When I first let my beard grow it got big fast and EVERYBODY made a comment on it, it freak people out nobody wasindifferent. I miss my beard but my skin was doingweirdtings and I had to shave the last one I had...I had two nice locks forming ( I put braids in my beard and they where locking up nicely). Reaction todifferenceis very natural it's part of how we evolve andsurvivedfor so long. Many of our social habits are 'residues' of our wild ancestors. We are domesticated (some more then others) andpredominantsocial conduct or reactions are evolutionary habits that survived until today. Some are useful others not and some limit us.

Dread locks in different languages.


General Talk

Lol!Awesome. I did not know about nattes and I think it sounds cool but cadenettes too so I think I'm going to use both and yes old school french is awesome. I met a nice fellow from Nantes and he was here for a few months. It took him a while to understand our peculiar style of french and he told me that we use a lot of old french words and expression. He found our accent amusing. I bet he would have got a kick out of me using cadenettesinsteadof dreads.

ben said:

Mes amis, vous avez l de bien belles cadenettes dans vos cheveux ! Sounds a little old school French ^^, but let's start the new trend ! Gonna be hard cause English is more in the french hype mood for a while.

Old frenchy fashion rules !!!

Ah! I like that one. Thanks.

Iggy Smith said:

in france braids and dreads are 'les nattes', a more contemporary alternative to cadenettes, but you can kinda tell one evolved from the other. so if you wanted to say i have dreadlocks, you'd say j'ai les cheveaux des nattes, that's where we get the word 'natty' from = natty dreads :)

Facebook parenting for troubled teen


General Talk

This video really gave me a bad vibe and yes it isprobablybecause the standards of discipline I was raised in was not that great (abusive). I was always living in fear, either the fear of the cult leaders or of my father.Highlycontrollingauthority figures make me sick to mystomach.This is why Isympathiesmore with the girl then the father but again not enough detail to really know.

That's not what I said, I said culture big difference. National identity currency boundaries and culture is not the same thing and yes it does have a lot (culture) to do with it. Wrong is not just plain wrong as you put it is a question of belief and is highly influenced by culture. I am not arguing that what she did is right or wrong or what he did is right or wrong ( like I said not enough info IMO) what I am saying is that how we react to the video (this is what thediscussionis about) is influence by back ground ( how we were raised) and culture is a part of each andeveryone back ground.

Angel Frye said

I don't think this has anything to do with national identity or currency boundaries. Wrong is just plain wrong. So is the reaction sound or over the top?

I don't have a gun but if I was in that guy's shoes I'd have taken a screw driver and taken the thing apart piece by piece right in front of her. We could always use the pieces for art projects. My husband makes custom toys for clients and man can he upcycle!

It's funny that a lot are just variations of the word dreadlocks or an association withRastafarianreligion. Must be because the dread lock "movement" (actually a return to locks) is afairlymodern one.

Rainbow Fortune said:

In Serbian it's dredovi (obviously taken from English), and raste (associated with the Rasta movement, again - obviously). In Hungarian it's the same, but different spelling - raszta. :)
